Winning $372,000 for the Rockaway Dune Enhancement Plan


Client: Rockaway Initiative for Sustainability & Equity

Partners: NYCParks, NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation, US Army Corps

Secured $372K from the NFWF’s National Coastal Resilience Fund to complete a site assessment and preliminary design to strengthen 7-miles of Rockaway’s dune system, the community’s first line of defense against storm surge. The project will align multiple state, federal and local projects and prioritize biodiversity and community voices in the process.
